Haha, I can see how you might think it's an unlimited budget though it did start out with a quite modest budget. As you can see now, it grew to a pretty decent amount.
Looking back at it, X79 may have been able to offer me a couple of things Z77 can't though overall, I'm extremely satisfied with my decision. Perhaps in the next build! biggrin.gif

Beastly, simply beastly... biggrin.gif

I think a titan rig would fold like mad, once Stanford implements them.

The fun of military work schedules has me switching back to my normal swing of things; 12 hour shifts, 15 days a month, which means: more time for building! It's odd how 20 more hours of work a month actually leaves more time for extracurricular activities, but it truly does.

I'm spending this night rigging all the rads and fans together and dropped into the case so I can start getting my fittings shopping list together.

Pics inc!

The build is looking Great K. thumb.gif

That's a lot of Rad. Great thing having those casters given there's plenty of weight in coolant alone. I find them a Godsend. biggrin.gif

As you already know the M10 is not as roomy as other cases when it comes to any large sized Rads (especially when you use an XL-ATX board like I have).
